Allow Whoopi Goldberg To Very Loudly Tell You When It’s Okay To Hit A Woman

Earlier today, it was announced that ESPN had suspended Stephen A. Smith from appearing on First Take for one week in the wake of his very poorly-expressed thoughts regarding Ray Rice’s two-game suspension.

Everything You (And Kiefer Sutherland) Need To Know About Freddie Prinze Jr.’s Time In The WWE

YouTube In wrestling, history is mutable: feuds are forgotten at the drop of a hat, extensive storylines -all recorded and internationally broadcast-being wiped out because one character stands in the ring and says it just wasn’t so.

Genki Sudo And World Order Will Make Gorillas Buy Toyota In ‘Jungle Wakudoki’

Genki Sudo and his band, WORLD ORDER are back! Granted, they are back in a Toyota ad, but that’s of no concern to me. WORLD ORDER could put out a video advertising the “Punch Jessica Hudnall Square in the Face” corporation and I’d probably share it at least five times. Plus, the ad includes Tarzans and gorillas, which are surefire ways of making me like a video a lot more...

This Japanese Martial Arts Star Breaks Ten Blocks With Her Head And Then Cheerfully Throws First Pitch

That’s Takeda Rina in the video above, doing her best to demoralize all of the men in the area by breaking ten blocks with her head and then throwing a fairly decent first pitch. Sure, she kinda rolls the pitch in there, but at least she keeps it straight. Is this better than the Taiwainese yoga strip first pitch? Doubtful. But she did star in several movies, including one called...
